These people have no shame. And apparently not too many smarts, either.

There's a group in Chicago who are all about the kids.  So much so that they've issued a spelling and grammatically-challenged pamphlet.  From the linked article:
Here are a few examples of butchered statements from the pamphlet.
“Call Mayor’s office and demand him (sic) to return the TIF money to our schools.”
Demand him? That sounds like something a three-year-old would say.
“Call governor (sic) Quinn and tell him to not bite on UNO’s fake shake up: 312-814-2121 or 217-782-0244.”
Um, the term Governor is a title, and titles start with capital letters, folks.
That’s just the first page.
Why is that a problem?  Oh, maybe because they're teachers!!!  And they have demands!!!
The TSJ document also features a cartoon with the title, “An equitable, high-quality public education is a human right!”
Too bad Chicago students won't be getting their rightful equitable, high-quality public education from this bunch.  No wonder Johnny can't read...or write...or balance a checkbook...or think for himself.  Neither can their teachers.

Luckily, today I stumbled across a palate cleanser to this.  Via Sarcasm and Too Much Crap, it's Teachers with a sense of humor.  Also teachers who actually put some thought into their work.  Here are my personal favorites:
